Abstract:This study aimed to determine the lived experiences of the Alternative Learning System (ALS) mobile teachers of the 2nd Congressional District of Sorsogon. This paper is a qualitative type of research employing phenomenological research. These aspects of experiences of ALS mobile teachers in their teaching competency cannot easily be measured by using numerical interpretation or any rubric techniques. In this research, the lived experiences of the 18 ALS mobile teachers in the 2nd Congressional District of Sorsogon were magnified and were given voices so their experiences will be heard.
The study revealed that of the 18 ALS mobile teachers, 8 respondents mentioned that they have traveled 1 to 5 kilometers from home to the community learning centers. There are 3 teachers who said that they traveled 7 to 10 kilometers. Other teachers said that it took 30 minutes to an hour just to reach the station, have traveled at least 30 minutes, it took 2 hours boat ride, and it took 3 hours to reach the station from the house. Meanwhile, the farthest distances mentioned by the 2 respondents are 14 kilometers and 32 kilometers, respectively. In relation to the mode of transportation in going to their station, 7 teachers said that they travel using motorcycle. Then, 3 respondents utilized their motorboat in going to the station. In terms of problems encountered in going to station and intervention, there were 9 teachers who mentioned that the weather conditions always hindered them in going to the station which caused flooding, big waves in the sea, and impends classes.
As to security, there were eight of the eighteen mobile teachers said that there were instances that their lives were put in danger when they fulfill their duties as ALS mobile teachers. In relation to security while performing their work while in the station, there were seven mobile teachers who affirmed of their safety since during the session, the barangay officials and parents are present. Also, they have established good relationship with the residents and community that is why they felt at home during the entire session.
From the respondents, there were seven of them who received a monthly take home pay within the range of 6,000 to 10,000 pesos while the others exceed 10,000 pesos. Although one teacher said that the money received is just really enough to support the needs. The respondents mentioned about their strategies of mapping and these are: attending barangay sessions, literacy mapping and other community engagement; advocacy and social mobilization, social media and radio; enlightening them that education is only a weapon for their success; seeking help from the barangay officials and BHW; home visitation; and determining school drop outs.
Majority of the ALS mobile teachers claimed that they were highly competent in coordinating with local officials and in the conduct of tutorials. Few learners narrated that the mobile teacher visited them when they are unable to attend their learning sessions. Thus, affirming the findings that the mobile teachers were less efficient in following up the progress of the learners. There were some learners who hesitantly mentioned that their mobile teacher sometimes failed to report to the agreed time and place in the conduct of their learning session. During the researcher’s observation on the conduct of learning sessions the researcher found out that the mobile teachers depended much on the available instructional materials which were already worn out due to the transfer of these materials from one barangay to another barangay.
The respondents narrated the reasons on how their interpersonal relationship is affected by the experiences as mobile teachers, such reasons are the attitude of a good listener that maintains a positive feelings and harmony towards good relationship and establishing positive attitudes among others. Also, the nature of their work is to mingle with different types of people in the community. Through this, it helped a lot to connect easily to others especially during the community mapping and home visitation to the learners. Also, the experiences greatly influenced the socialization to others, most especially during recruitment of possible ALS learners and during dialogues with the community.
